Lucid Lou has rolled with Toronto Roller Derby since Derby began to seep into the consciousness of the city and started its first season in 2007. Wearing the distinctive #12:34 Lucid Lou has been a huge part of the Death Track Dolls wall as pivot and blocker. Now she is spreading the sport to another part of the province beyond.
One would wonder where Lucid Lou finds the time juggling duties with Toronto Roller Derby, Death Track Dolls, TJRD but up in Peterborough known in hockey circles for the Peterborough TPTs [now called the Petes], and to vacationers for its ideal cottage country, with a little convincing, she along with friend Falldown Firlotte has made a vision come true, with the creation of Peterborough Roller Derby this year. She has found the time to provide this insight into her new league.
Peterborough has scrimmages set up with new leagues and are on the lookout for more contacts. On their game slate is an August 20th date against GTA Rollergirls’s Chrome Mollys as well as participation in 2 Fresh 2 Furious—a freshies tournament hosted by GTAR as well on July 9 at the Ted Reeve Arena Bubble.
You must have all forms and insurance filled out and paid before starting, you can e-mail forms and money to firstname.lastname@example.org
Juniors and adults practice together on drills but are not allowed to have contact with each.
As with all leagues, Peterborough is on the search for Referees and male skaters as well in hopes of forming a co-ed male team. “Our male member usually Ref for the Womens teams.”
So kudos to Lucid Lou and Falldown Firlotte for promoting this fabulous sport and to Peterborough for embracing the world of Derby and to all the league members working so hard to push Derby forth.
By the way, Happy Birthday Lucid Lou!
